The 12th annual Windermere Cup men's and women's varsity eight races, featuring rowing competition between the University of Washington, the Australian National Team and the Northeastern University women's crew, will highlight the 29th annual Windermere Cup Races/Opening Day Regatta on Montlake Cut Saturday, May 2. The 1998 Windermere Cup will welcome the men's crew from the Nottinghamshire County Rowing Association and the British National Team and the University of Virginia in the women's race.

The feature races' sponsorship by Windermere Real Estate, Inc., which began in 1987, draws major national and international crews each year to the Windermere Cup Races.

The Opening Day Regatta has been a traditional part of the opening of yachting season since 1970, and women's intercollegiate races were added to the schedule in 1976. The regatta is the preliminary event to the annual yacht club parade which signals the beginning of boating season in the Pacific Northwest.

Tie-up moorage is available on both sides of Montlake Cut, extending out from the Cut toward the start line of the race in Lake Washington, providing an ideal setting for spectators to view both the regattta and the parade of yachts that follows. Thousands of watersport enthusiasts have lined the Cut in recent years to witness first-hand the one of the most exciting sporting events in the region - the Windermere Cup Races and Opening Day activities.
